Originally from Sheffield he went to study medicine at King’s College London. After completing a degree (BSc) in biomedical science he qualified in medicine in 1997. Working initially in the South East, he returned to the Sheffield region to commence his surgical training, and then completed his higher surgical training specialising in trauma and orthopaedics. His training was then completed by a yearlong fellowship in upper limb surgery at the University Teaching Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire.

In 2009 he was appointed at Rotherham Hospital in 2009 as a consultant with a special interest in shoulder and elbow surgery and has worked in the region ever since.

In 2015 Mr Bryant was also appointed by the Sheffield Children’s Hospital to provide a specialist multi-disciplinary clinic to treat children with complex shoulder and elbow problems.
